More DC Pics

We did manage to get away and do a little sightseeing this weekend - not much but a quick visit to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History and while there some pics from the Mall. First a pic of the capital and then one of the Washington Monument.

And a picture of the Hope Diamond which Miss M really, really wanted to see. There was a huge crowd around it, but I took a couple of shots. It's prettier in person because it reflects all the camera flashes (and there were a LOT of them) and changes color.
These were the diamonds I wanted Steve to get for me - a deep red and a gorgeous pink teardrop. Apparently pink and red are the rarest of diamond colors and are therefore, incredibly expensive. Wonder if he'll get me one for Mother's day?

Sorry for the loss.
